Hilal Shawwal in Saudi Arabia and Eid could not be seen A Sky News Arabia correspondent in Saudi Arabia said, on Friday evening, that the moon of Shawwal could not be seen at the Sudair Astronomical Observatory.
“Therefore, the blessed Eid Al-Fitr in Saudi Arabia will be on Sunday, May 24 … awaiting the official announcement by the Supreme Court.”
The Supreme Court had called yesterday to investigate the vision of the crescent of Shawwal for this year 1441 AH, on Friday evening.
The Supreme Court called on those who see it with the naked eye or through endoscopes to inform the nearest court, register his testimony with it, or contact the nearest center to help him reach the nearest court.
The Saudi Ministry of Interior announced a few days ago to impose a 24-hour curfew throughout the Kingdom, during the Eid al-Fitr holiday.
